The Loire Valley region

Rural France at it's best, the mayenne countryside offers every shade of green! Perfect for discovering the "real" France, there are lots of local markets and restaurants to enjoy a truly gastronomic holiday. Or walk the many miles of local "Randonees" - the national sunday afternoon past-time. Rich in historical sights and Chateaux as well as great shopping (Rennes) and sporting events (Le Mans), there is lots to see and do. Individual "themed" tourist information is available via email once your booking has been confirmed, choose from: Family, Romantic, Active and Cultural info packs.

The weather is typically 4-8 degrees warmer than England, particularly during the summer when the sun feels much warmer.
